A Stellar Purchase?

filter1I was extremely fortunate enough to win Erin over at The Mom Buzz’s Shop at Home contest for a $100 Target e-gift card. Things being as dicey as they are for my family right now I was intending to stash the code and use it for necessities but as it turned out it was used, instead for a necessity for our house.

I’ve told you before but I’ll tell you again, we live in a 1,200 square foot townhouse. The townhouse we live in was originally one big house but at some point it was split in to three small townhouse units – ours is the middle unit. The house itself is shoddily built with a minimum of half inch gaps under the doors and cracks in the windows that let the freezing winter air whistle through. We take measures to keep as much heat in as possible but the chill remains and as a result we both migrate upstairs where the heating that is literally sucked from the downstairs is plentiful. The problem with such an abundance of warm air? It’s drier than a camel’s hump after three months in the desert. To combat the bone dry air we have always run cool mist humidifiers and they have always worked for short periods of time to combat nosebleeds but they undoubtedly go without being emptied and within months they are full of mold. So last night after Buzz IM’d me to let me know that he has been feeling a little under the weather I decided to put my Target e-gift card to good use.

I purchased the Crane Warm Mist Humidifier in black – as pictured above. I couldn’t find any reviews on this particular model because I believe it’s fairly new; however, I did find a mass of positive reviews on Crane models in general. I spent a few hours researching whether a cool or warm mist humidifier would be best for us and decided to give the warm mist a try (this isn’t to say that we won’t be cleaning this one!). The model I picked comes in either white or black and retails for $39.99 so in my opinion it is neither cheap nor expensive. I will check back in to let you know how things go with the new addition.

I also picked up a couple of bargain pieces to make sure that I qualified for free shipping on my order, check these out:
